Title: Italian Popcorn (from Drive-In Movie Ads)
Description: An Italian popcorn vender talks about popcorn. It starts off with the whistle on top of his cart playing Pop Goes the Weasel. Does he ask -everybody knows the weasel blows-? You can find the original film in Drive-In Movie Ads. This is my attempt to correct the film's beginning, which is badly tinted magenta. Actually all of it is magenta, the beginning being worse.
This clip is from a compilation of drive-in intermission films found here on Internet Archives in the Drive-In Movie Ads section. Most are color but there are a few black & whites because of their quality or uniqueness.
PLEASE NOTE: These clips have been modified from the originals. They have been carefully cropped to remove excess black frame while preserving as much of the actual image as possible. I've adjusted the brightness/contrast, and color correction to the best of my ability. Magenta tinted films were especially difficult. These clips are also louder than the originals. Volume has been increased. In some cases the audio track was separated and remixed in an audio editor to enhance the sound. The enhanced audio files are available for upload if requested.
